They are running off buzz, but they haven't proved themselves as box office draws outside of franchise-type movies where the concepts and visual effects were the draw.

Jackman, Lawrence, Hoult, and Berry are the only ones who have proved recently that they can carry a film (with adequate marketing and distribution). Halle has a core audience. Fox would be wise to attract it.
Hmmm I wouldn't include Hoult in that group. The vampire movie that he did and Jack the Giant Beanstalk movie are franchise type movies.
